Still here

Hey ya’ll.  I’m still here.   New thing, I tried prenatal yoga on Sunday, and I loved it.  No one cared if your gut was sticking out.  Or how inflexible you were.  There were plenty of modifications for you no matter how big or small you were.  So fun.  Signed up to take at least three more classes.  Yay!

Still trying to run.  And, can I just say how much I appreciate my friends I’ve made while running?  These girls who have been running with me all have these big lofty goals and prs in mind.  Yet, they still make the time to take me out on a “warm up” run every Tuesday and Sunday so I still get out there.  We end up doing the run one minute walk two or whatever I’m feeling up to that day heart rate wise and it’s wonderful.  And they say they don’t mind going slower which is so nice.  And, my first running buddy Tiffany just called this morning.  I was crying, sobbing…no real reason.  Hubby pointed out that maybe the pregnancy hormones are kicking in, thanks honey.  She invited me out to lunch and we all went and ate good Mexican food.  Totally made my day.  Now I’m getting ready to head out for my 1/2 hour with the girls and looking forward to a run with Tiffany tomorrow morning.  I am lucky

Also, Laura and I did a race on Saturday!  The cost was food to the food bank so I couldn’t pass it up.  It was chilly and needless to say we didn’t exactly run together but we ran in spirit together.  She got a pr YAY!  And, I made it to the finish line in about 45minutes.  I did let my heart rate get up to 160 before I walked though and it should have been 150 but I was feeling fine.

Here’s some recent pics:

Laura and I after finishing the race.  Isn’t she cute?  I’m gonna wear my tutu the next time I race with her!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween.  I’m currently gorging on clearance Halloween candy.   MMmmmm.

Good for you for keeping up with the running, no matter how fast or slow. I wouldn't worry too much about the heart rate, all the research I did says that the main thing is to just listen to your body and not push yourself too hard. Great job on the race!
